When it comes to long-haul family holidays, we completely understand the difficulties in choosing the perfect destination, region and hotel to suit the whole family. Happy children equal happy Mums and Dads, and with many parents within the Turquoise team, we often travel with children in mind. One destination which ticks all the boxes for our resident Mums and Dads when considering a family holiday is Oman. Access is easy with direct flights from London… in a little over 7 hours you could be en route to a sun kissed beach on the shores of Muscat or winding through the stunning panorama’s of the Hajar Mountains.

One resort we always highly recommend to our guests is the luxurious Six Senses Zighy Bay. Its features make it the perfect Oman family resort. Read on to learn why!

Why Six Senses Zighy Bay Hotel & Spa Resort?

Six Senses Zighy Bay sits in the glorious seclusion of the Musandam Peninsula in Oman. Unlike the other properties in our Oman portfolio, Zighy Bay is best accessed from Dubai International Airport (under seven hour flight from the UK) making it an ideal mid haul destination for families.

Enjoy the breath-taking views over the peninsula as your chauffeur-driven car approaches Zighy Bay where your friendly G.E.M is waiting for you. Your G.E.M (a Guests Experience Maker; a modern day butler) really makes the holiday and they are the heart and soul of the resort. Even the lead in villa category, the Pool Villa, is spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children. Children sleep on the oversized daybeds and Mummy & Daddy can relax on the idyllic terrace with a private pool when it’s bed time.

The private pool is generous in size and offers a shallow end for children and there are lots of shady corners for everyone to enjoy during the hot midday sun. When it comes to restaurants, all family meal times are catered for either at Spice Market, Summer House or Shua Shack. We highly recommend the Arabian Buffet Night with its delicious array of local flavours (children even have their own cute section!). And the cute resident goats surely put a smile on everyone’s face when found wandering around the resort!

We hope we’ve inspired you to book Six Senses Zighy Bay for your next Oman family holiday! This luxury resort really does have something for everyone and its stunning decor, amenities, and features will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. Looking for more information on Oman?
